Panasonic teases RP-BTGS10 bone conduction Bluetooth headphones
The sound is said to be of pretty low volume for comfortable hearing, even without ambient noise, but Panasonic reps commented that the final version of the Bluetooth headphones will be two to three times louder than the prototype, so here's for hoping.
If you want to give your poor eardrums a rest, the bone-conducting Panasonic headphones will be released in the fall for an yet undisclosed price, and are aimed at the active sporty types, with the wraparound design to match.
The whole point is to make you still aware of your environment while listening to music, as your ears will be wide open, unless, of course, there are a lot of stealthily sounding electric cars crossing the area where you do your jogging sessions. We'll have to wait and see if Panasonic's kit will deliver after the summer.
